Now is a good time to make your will and consider leaving a legacy gift to a cause you care about.

Having a will is very important for so many good reasons and particularly during our annual November awareness campaign, My Legacy Month, we encourage you to take that first step in writing your will by making an appointment with a solicitor. Your solicitor will give you expert guidance and advice about making or amending a will at any time of the year.

It is usually a much more straightforward and cost effective process than you might think; it will only take about an hour or so of your time. Your solicitor will discuss what is necessary for drawing up this very important personal document when you make an appointment.

Once family and friends have been looked after and all other important personal decisions have been made, deciding to leave a legacy gift to a charity is a wonderful way to support a favourite cause in the future. Large or small, every legacy is a generous gift of hope and trust for the future.

1. Make An Appointment

A solicitor will give you expert advice and support.

Take the first step to discuss your wishes and decisions for the future.

2. Look After Loved Ones First

Why a will is important.

A will provides for loved ones, assigns guardians, protects assets and helps reduce inheritance tax.

3. Consider A Legacy To Charity

Your gift may be big or small and is tax free.

If you have a cause close to your heart, please consider leaving a gift to that charity in your will.
